It is time for many high school graduates to enter college. For those of you who entered college full-time right out of high school, what advice can you provide? For those of you who attended college in a non-tradtional manner, what advice can you provide?
Ben Stein has some advice of his own, of which some I agree and some I do not.
* make friends with your teachers
* do your papers neatly, according to the assignment, and on time
* Take courses that will be of genuine use to your mind
Tips from me, a non-traditional student:
* Don't get into big debt unless you have some idea that you can pay it back (high paying career, inheritance, etc.)
* Try to make friends, join clubs/study groups, etc. (Similar to Stein's tip without the fraternity/sorority.)
* Keep in touch with family and friends from home, at least until you are comfortable in college.
* Don't try to keep up with the "Jones", you'll have plenty of time for that after college.
* Take some courses you want to take, not just what is required for graduation.
